Sans serif combination for Futura PL

motorzombie's picture

Hi. I'm working on a webdesign for dj school.

We are going to use FUTURA PL as the main font for headers, titles and menu. The client doesn't want to use a serif as a complement for body text.

Which sans-serif font do you recommend to use for body text that would look good in combination with FUTURA PL?

I'm trying to avoid using Helvetica as the combination.

Here is a draft with FUTURA and Helvetica

Thank you!

First things first: Futura is a poor choice.

What would you recommend then?

Something fluid. But I don't know how adventurous you can be here.

Or something at least a bit hip.

There are so many interesting choices out there...
